The Make It Legal effort was led by medical marijuana companies that have dispensaries in Florida.
MedMen has a dispensary in West Palm Beach and nine other locations in Florida. Committee chairman Hansen joined MedMen in 2018 as director of government affairs in the Southeastern United States.
Make It Legal also was backed by Parallel, the new corporate name of Surterra Wellness, which has 37 dispensaries throughout South Florida and the state.
Singer Jimmy Buffett had also endorsed Make It Legal Florida.
Medical marijuana for qualifying health conditions was made legal in Florida through a 2016 constitutional amendment approved by voters.
